Family, a set on Flickr.
My cousins arrived Friday and stayed with grandpa and grandma. The kids and I went out to their house Saturday and then the whole family came to my house Sunday for lunch.
Saturday when at the grandparents house, the kids ran wild, colored, played Barbies. For lunch we went to Peter Piper Pizza to let the kids play and expend some energy. It worked because when we got home, they were all a little more tired.
Sunday, Amanda and Keira spent the night at my house and Monday morning we all went to the Phoenix Zoo. I unfortunately could not find my camera and I’m bummed I missed out on some great photos. Amanda got some good ones though!
Tuesday, Amanda, Keira and I went swimming again and then met our grandparents at Cracker Barrel for dinner and let Amanda and Keira spend one more night with them before they headed home to Ohio. Keira really made me sad. She was crying and telling me she was gonna miss me, Elle and Ivan.
Amanda and I are only two months apart and pretty much grew up doing lots of things together. I find it amazing that we both had girls first and they are 4 months apart and then our sons are 5 months apart. I wish Ethan could have come this time, but I am sure the kids and I will get back to Ohio at some point. We will definitely see them!
We had a great time and wish the time did not go so fast. Until next time…
